Why advertise with Beartown Voice

From Katy...

I hope that by the time you read this, the weather has improved! As I’m writing, it still feels like winter, and we are yet to turn our heating off, although I have checked the weather report for this coming weekend and it looks positive.

In this edition, with the staycation in mind, we have a feature on the benefits of camping, plus a new advertiser, Leisure Sales, is promoting a range of tents. We also have lovely caravan and camping sites listed, one in Pembrokeshire and one in North Wales; we could have your summer holidays covered, and I am sure by summertime the weather will be lovely.

This Beartown Voice is the most bumper edition we have ever produced; it’s been an absolute honour to put it together and speak to our advertisers and writers. We have some great articles celebrating local businesses and services; I spoke to Damon of Clear Glaze Window Cleaning about starting his own business during a pandemic, and we have some tips from Platinum Accountancy Services about becoming self-employed.

To help you relax, Mike Holland explores our awareness of earth, air, water, and fire, the four elements, we speak to Emma Sandford about her debut picture book ‘The Problem with Poppy’ and we have a few wise words from Geoff Gittins, Congleton’s Consumer Champion. There is so much more in this edition; I hope you can take a few minutes out of your day and enjoy flicking through.
